Meet Gavin

Workforce Challenge

Gavin came to WfBC needing assistance finding a job. Gavin was on probation, living in a half-way house, and was having a hard time getting employers to call him back because of his criminal record. If Gavin did not find work within a specified amount of time, he would be sent back to jail for violating the terms of his probation.

Workforce Solution

Gavin enrolled into the WIOA Young Adult program and quickly interviewed for an internship with the Techtonic Group as a Computer Programmer. They offered him the internship opportunity right away as they saw great potential in Gavin. The Young Adult program supported Gavin, preparing him for work in an office environment, providing gas cards for transportation to work, and offering encouragement to him over the course of his internship.

Outcomes & Benefits

Upon completion of his internship, Gavin was offered a full-time, permanent position with Techtonic Group as a computer programmer. Gavin has been employed there now for seven months. He said that he enjoys his work and is learning new things. He is working on projects with senior coders, increasing his knowledge and experience.
